What the? ARPANSA seems to contradict both the Minister and Jemena!!
The Minister for Energy Michael O’Brien says:
“a Smart Meter produces less radio frequency than other house hold items like a cordless phone”. “You receive far more radiation from other common house hold items like a cordless phone or baby monitor!”
“If you have a microwave oven in your home, if you have a mobile phone in your home, a baby monitor or a cordless phone, you will be exposed to a higher level of radio frequency,” http://au.news.yahoo.com/today-tonight/money/article/-/11348901/smart-metre-concerns/
Smart Meter radio frequency emissions are less than most other sources in the home such as those produced by mobile phones, microwave ovens and baby monitors. This means the radiofrequency of a smart meter would be at a weaker (and therefore safer) level than most other sources in the home. http://au.news.yahoo.com/today-tonight/money/article/-/11348901/smart-metre-concerns/
But ARPANSA says:
With frequencies similar to mobile and cordless phones, smart meters and other wireless devices used for communication are regulated by the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA). http://www.arpansa.gov.au/RadiationProtection/Factsheets/is_smartmeters.cfm
So we have gone from less, to weaker to similar!
Who do we believe?
